Kanazawa University Research: Vapor Drives a Liquid-solid Transition in a Molecular System

KANAZAWA, Japan, March 25, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — The reversible switching of macrocyclic molecules between a liquid and a solid phase upon exposure to vapor has been reported in the Journal of the American Chemical Society by researchers at Kanazawa University. The transition between a solid and a liquid phase, a key process in daily life and materials science, is generally driven by a change in temperature or pressure. However, a reversible change of state caused by other stimuli is also possible: for example, light has been used to induce solid–liquid transitions. Tomoki Ogoshi from Kanazawa University in Japan and colleagues ...
